    Is that you?
    I like the way you practice everything in one session & continuously. It tries to simulate a real rally, I guess. If ball is short, come close and hit volleys. Then a lob to try a nice lob return.

    Impressive, wish I could do that. I'm actually looking into laying a 30x50 slab and setting up a wall in my backyard right now ...

    Very good 5 minute wall burnout workout.
    I would only suggest adding in some overhead practice and some more serving with volleying practice (Serve/Volley). Could also practice some half volleys.
    This guy has a pretty classic game since he hits with pretty closed stances and has pretty flat strokes. Even looks like he may be using a midsize. Maybe I should post one of my wall workouts ...

    The Overhead

    Here is clip of the OH , was real cold out and there was small patch of ice off to the side watch him fall face first!

    Classic game with the educated wrist and the open stance !

    How many ballls does he hit in the 5 minute burnout workout?

    The Mascot

    Yes...someone saw the mascot!

    The lesson here is anyone or thing can learn to hit the ball.

    Watch the mascot learn how to track the ball.

    That is instant tennis at its best.

    This is the way to find talent.

    Feed a ball and see what they do.

    Put them at the wall and see what they got.

    Remember to watch the ball.

    Sure you know watch the ball.

    Ouch !
    Now I see why you did not include that part of the video.
    I dont really care how many balls are hit as long as you can keep using good mechanics and hitting quality strokes until burnout.
    Thanks for posting !

    Whoa that must really be good for one's consistancy, hitting each stroke including the serve, over and over with the same, correct form. ;)
